to everyone who joined our class for lunch today. It was a nice treat!
We are starting a new contest tomorrow. If your child knows the catch phrase when asked he/she will win a prize. The only rule is that your child cannot say the phrase until asked. Please go over the one rule and phrase with your child tonight. This should be fun!
PHRASE: Gobble, Gobble
Animal projects are due on Thursday.
Thanks to Caroline, Finnly, Kenneth, and Neill for donating books from the book fair to our classroom. I can't wait to read them to our class. I know everyone will love them as much as I do!
Just a quick reminder that our family and friends luncheon is tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10:30. I also wanted to ask all parents to send in a note if your child is allowed to be checked out by someone after the lunch is over. I have a sign-out sheet in my classroom but will not allow anyone who isn't a parent sign-out a child without a note.
Happy birthday, Peter!
We will have our Georgia assessment tomorrow as well as our goods and services assessment. We reviewed both today. Good luck!
On Thursday we went to the science lab to learn about energy. We did two activities. One was on light and the other was heat.
We continued our class discussion on allocation of goods and services as well as having another Latimer's Lottery. Congratulations to our three winners on Thursday! Friday was pj and animal day. Oh the fun! I loved walking around the room during our special guest reading time on Friday and seeing all of the animals. I was amazed that some were enjoying a good book of their own and couldn't resist taking pictures.
Tuesday is our family and friend's luncheon. Our time is 10:30-11:10. Please let me know by Monday afternoon if your child won't have a guest to eat with. Please meet us in front of our classroom a few minutes before our time. After lunch you can visit the book fair and veteran display in the media center, go holiday shopping in room 202, and have your pictures taken too.
We are previewing the book fair on Monday. Your child is welcome to go after the luncheon with his/her guest or any day next week before school starts. Please make sure your child knows your expectations for how the money should be spent. I won't be monitoring the purchases made.
Yesterday we played Jeopardy against Mrs. Schmitter's class to review our Georgia founders. We also introduced a new topic, allocation of goods and services. We began the lesson defining allocation, goods, and services. We came up with many examples of goods and services. This quarter we are focusing on 4 different ways: money, bartering/trading, contest, and lottery. We even had our first "Latimer's Lottery". We had three lucky winners! We also reviewed the current A.R. contest that we are competing in, as well as the coloring contest homework from last night. Please ask your child to tell you about the ways and to give you examples of each.
Congrats to our excited lottery winners!
The class has filled the cookie jar with compliments twice and has earned a day of pajamas and stuffed animals. We'll have that day tomorrow. Yeah!
We had a great time at Mary Musgrove's trading post.
Today (Monday) we began writing our informational paragraphs about turkeys. We also started taking notes on our chosen animals in the media center. Just a reminder that we are collecting non-perishable food goods. Please send in your donations as soon as possible. We are reading about Tomochichi during social studies. Ask your child what he/she has learned about this Yamacraw chief. First come, first served! Who'd like a special guest for Thanksgiving? If you are staying home for the holiday and would like to watch over our class fish and Freddy, please let me know.
